Minutes after the Season Ticket Holder Gate was slated to open, MCU Park staffers came out to inform fans who made the trip to Coney Island that the game tonight between the Brooklyn Cyclones & Staten Island Yankees has been rained out.
The two rivals will play a doubleheader tomorrow. Game 1 will start at 5:30 PM with Game 2 starting 30 minutes after the conclusion of Game 1.
Per MiLB Rules, both games will be 7 innings long. Following the doubleheader will be post-game fireworks.
The gates will open tomorrow at 5:00 PM, with the 1st 2,000 fans into MCU Park receiving Edgardo Alfonzo Bobbleheads. There is no word if the Season Ticket Holder gate will open earlier.
Erik Manoah (3-1, 4.75) will make the start for Brooklyn against Staten Island’s Jonathan Padilla (1-1, 3.50) in Game 1. RHPGabriel Llanes (1-4, 3.38) will face off against RHP Taylor Widener (2-0, 0.00) in Game 2.
